Why Did an Iowa Woman Have Giraffe Poop in Her Luggage at a Minnesota Airport?
We have all been guilty of packing something in our suitcase that may require a bit of an explanation to other people, but nothing like this!
Last week (September 29) at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, authorities seized more than a dozen pieces of giraffe poop from the luggage of a passenger returning from Kenya.
The 'contraband' was discovered when the unidentified woman, who lives in Iowa, was selected for inspection by authorities. The passenger said she planned to make a necklace with the feces.
Authorities destroyed the feces and chose not to charge the woman, who could have faced a fine of up to $1,000.
But here's the weird part.
If she had one thing prior to her trip, she could have LEGALLY brought the giraffe poop into the country.
It's OK to bring animal poop to the U.S. if you secure a Veterinary Services Permit.
Better luck next time...
